Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-8272) BytesWritable length problem
Date Mon, 16 Apr 2012 13:04:23 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8272?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13254665#comment-13254665

Simon Gilliot commented on HADOOP-8272:
---------------------------------------

My bad, you're right.
I read all the source code of BytesWritable to understand what's happening and miss the getBytes()
javadoc.

Sorry for that

> I tried to create my own Writable which contains a BytesWritable.
> In my conctructor, I tried to create an empty BytesWritable :
> BytesWritable key = new BytesWritable();
> Next, in my readFields, I did :
> key.readFields(in); LOG.debug(Bytes.toString(key.getBytes()));
> The key contains much more bytes than I had wrote.
> In fact, if my BytesWritable contains 100 bytes, I thing that the readFields() of BytesWritable
call :
> * setSize(0) (which seems useless since the values in the old range are preserved and
any new values are undefined). * setSize(100) which extends the bytes array (by setCapacity)
to 1.5 * the size (so 150) without initalizing it
> * readFully(bytes, 0, 100) which fill the bytes array from '0' to '100' offsets.
> And when I call getBytes() on it, the bytes array of 150 bytes is returned without any
control.
> That seems possible that the same problem happens in other conditions, when we increase
ths bytes array size.
